Life Update: Puppy, Allergies, and We have a Home!

Hi Family and Friends,

While I doubt many of you are following our little family on this blog yet, I know eventually you (or maybe just me) will be looking back at this post and enjoying the story of how we got where we are.

First I want to address our puppy, or better stated, lack of a puppy. We brought Maverick home with us the day before Easter. Everyone loved him, and rightly so because he is adorable. Sadly it didn’t take long for us to realize that Randsom was allergic to him. This fun friend we brought home for our son was making him cough and wheeze. He had snot pouring out like a faucet and he broke out in hives when the puppy licked him. We waited 1 week, took Randsom to the allergist to confirm our fear, and that was that. 
Thankfully, my wonderful family graciously decided to adopt Maverick and give him a loving home. We are sad that Mav couldn’t stay with us and that Randsom won’t get to be around him much, but I know my family will love him and hopefully we will find a remedy for Randsom so someday he can play with all the puppies he wants.

Speaking of remedies for Randsom’s allergies, we are exploring our options. We have made appointments with several natural care doctors and we are hopeful. While I fully believe in the good that modern medicine does, I don’t want to discount anything that may provide relief just because it isn’t main stream. We will forever continue to see a certified allergist who works closely with a hospital, I know the risks my son will face everyday with his growing list of allergies and I never want to be without professionals in this field. But, Randsom would have to live in a bubble if his only form of allergy treatment is avoiding his allergens. I want to give Randsom the best chance at being safe and healthy. I know that I can’t keep him out of contact with every single allergen he has. Because of this I have decided to explore several safe, noninvasive, natural procedures. I will update more on what they are and if they work after we have finished. 

And for the final update…. WE HAVE A HOUSE! Purchased this month in Pullman, Washington. It’s a 3 bedroom beauty and I can’t wait to post pictures of all the decorating and updating I plan to do. It is a relief to know we have a place to live when we move in July. I can’t believe it’s only 3 months until we start our next chapter.

This was a long and rambling post and I’m impressed that you made it to the end.
